After arriving late to the airport and checking into the hotel, we were looking for a good spot to grab a late night snack or dinner. This was the closest spot to where we were staying and my goodness are we ever glad we found this place. It has something for everyone. Nice bar/pub feel inside and an enormous beer... More

The Village offers just drinks, snacks and drinks or a good range of meals. My partner and I were there for lunch with two older friends, one of whom is in a wheelchair. A ramp from the outside into the restaurant area was appreciated, as was friendly service - even if a tad slow. We shared a bottle of pinot... More

My partner and I had dinner here whilst in Melbourne for a few days. Safe to say, we were not disappointed! We shared pork sliders, lamb ribs & prosciutto salad which were all delicious, and the drinks were fabulous (try the Magic Matty cocktail). The restaurant itself is beautiful inside & out. Service from Lucas was wonderful, he is a... More

A great outdoor area for summer to have a drink and relax after work. Pleasant outdoor pub and pub food available. Fine selection of beer on tap.

We dropped in here for a cold drink on a very hot Friday afternoon. It was lovely to sit in the shade of the mature trees outside and have a cold beer/drink or two. The staff were all friendly and the atmosphere was very upbeat. Although we didn't have a meal, as we were heading out later on, all the... More

Visited the Bistro in October. Excellent service. We chose to share a platter with some loaded fries. Too much for us to finish. Some lovely beer as well. Very good value and would recommend.

The steak was fabulous and great service from Fraser. Good atmosphere. I was seated at a table where I didn't stick out like a sore thumb by being on my own - would definitely go back.

The receptionist from the hotel where I was staying recommended this restaurant. It was a great recommendation. I ordered the Steak (porthouse) & Fries for only 18AU$ and I didn't expect what I got. It was a good portion and it was delicious. My friend ordered the Parma Chicken and it was also very tasty. We shared the calamari as... More

We met with business acquaintances for dinner at the village. It's not directly on St Kilda rd you just need to walk around the corner. Great variety of craft beers on tap. Staff were helpful and friendly and the food was great. We had a mixture of entrees. Buffalo wings. Calamari and dips all were great. I had the Rump... More

The Village Bistro is a unique looking restaurant. Great outdoor area for groups of people to get together and have drinks. The service was unfortunately a "downer", did not feel welcomed and that we were an effort for staff. However, the meals were fantastic nothing short of a "yum yum". I ordered the chicken parma and I would rate this... More
